They’re Back . . .

He showed up on the fifteenth like clockworks. He’s sitting on a maple tree limb beside the front porch.

April 15th and our first hummer of the year has arrived. He found the feeder that I put out on the first and the next day another one showed up. We now have a male and female. I put the feeder out on the first because last year they showed up early and I wasn’t prepared. I checked their syrup yesterday afternoon to make sure it was still good, and I didn’t have to make another batch.

They’re always a bit flighty when they first show up and it was hard to get a good photo.
